Muito simpático, se preocupou em saber o que buscávamos para montar seu roteiro, conhece muito bem a cidade e contribuiu com informações históricas e culturais muito agregadoras ao passeio.

Usei o Rent a local Friend em Barcelona e tivemos o prazer de conhecer o Silvinho Coelho Filho. Brasileiro, morando em Barcelona a muitos anos, super simpático ( importantíssimo para receber turistas) esteve sempre muito bem disposto a nós ajudar em tudo que necessitamos. Conhece bem a cidade, dá dicas muito legais e para quem gosta de gastronomia, conhece tudo de restaurantes. Indico muito! Márcia Bauerle
Silvio was a great guide for our first time in Barcelona! We did not plan much for our trip and we spent half a day with Silvio on our first day to get a feel for the city.
Silvio displayed a high level of interest and understanding of the city's history. He was also quite knowledgeable on the local gastronomy, drinks and wine as well - we visited many small bars and restaurants which are not always available through internet searches. His prior work experience in the hospitality industry was evident as he had a great breath of information on the local hot spots. While Silvio was able to provide interesting tidbits throughout the tour, he was also gracious enough to answer all of our questions with great candor. He truly loves the city and it showed on his tour.
Probably the best thing about Silvio was his ability to flex to meet our needs. About 2.5 hours into the tour, my feet were shot and I couldn't walk anymore (I blame it on the shoes). We stopped at a local bar and grabbed a couple drinks and spend the next hour or so talking about the city. Silvio pulled out a map and marked all the areas we saw, giving us a great overview of the previous 3 hours. He then went further to help us plan the next 3 days by highlighting must see attractions, must eat foods, and restaurant recommendations. It felt like we were talking to an old friend over drinks.
Overall, we really enjoyed our time in Barcelona and much of that had to do with the information Silvio provided. It was like hours of googling condensed into a comprehensive, personally tailored map of the city. It wasn't tripadvisor's top 10, DK travel must do's, or 4 days in Barcelona by Rick Steves - it was the local guide to enjoying Barcelona by a local. Money well spent. We'll definitely be back and when we do, we'll call up Silvio to make us another map.
